    Hi John,

    Slow Food Columbus is just getting rolling. In general our information is on our main website at, and information about the event mentioned above is under the Event tab. The site will be getting a facelift, most likely over the weekend, and probably at that time more specifics about the event will be up. More generally, though, drop us a line — we’re big L’Antibes fans and would love to be in touch!!

    Hi Jim,

    Thanks a bunch for giving a nod to Slow Food Columbus. Our first event will be held at Cafe del Mondo (fourth street) March 20 by paid reservation only. Keep your eyes peeled for the final details sooner than soon, as Bear previously mentioned, at . We will be planning lots of great events. Anyone that would like to know more about the movement or to be involved, contact us via the website. Chef John– we snails will be in touch…
